alright so last night i was at bjj and i was wrestling a new guy, and because it was towards the end of the lesson i didnt ask what i was doing wrong, or what led to my 'mistake' if you can call it that. Okay so your basic triangle looks like this (your meant to pull the arm across your body i know. eg: so the blue gi is pulling the white gis right arm across his body) However because i was tired i had my feet tied up like the blue gi guy, However i had the white guys left arm in my triangle, as opposed to the right arm as shown in this diagram. I was squeezing his head down to get the submission however this guy didnt want to tap, so i wasnt sure if it was working or not, he was going purple in the face but he wasnt tapping. Can it work if i have the other arm in, or do i have to reverse my foot hold? only BJJers comment please, and say your belt colour or however long you have been doing it if your a white belt. Thank you guys! knew i could count on OT!
